Developmental Disabilities Studies
The Certificate in Developmental Disabilities Studies covers a number of the topics required for employees by OMRDD (Office of Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities). Lifestyles of individuals with developmental disabilities have changed dramatically over the past twenty years as they have moved out of institutions and into community residences.
The certificate program addresses skills and knowledge necessary for human service workers in this area. The certificate may be completed in one year (full-time) and can be taken separately or as part of the Human Services AAS Degree Program.
